V.A. Soundtrack For Naked Runners Vol. 02 (2012)

ARTIST: Various
ALBUM: V.A. Soundtrack For Naked Runners Vol. 02
GENRES: Psychedelic Rock, Pop, Indie, Funk, Cumbia, World, Disco
YEAR: 2012
A New Bleeding Panda Compilation!

Hey guys:) Thank you so so much for all the love and support. I still can't totally give up on sharing music I adore so here it is - a sequel to my most popular comp - Naked Runners

Compared to the first one it has much less funk and jazz but more psych and covers more countries. It was impossible to follow the first volume as it was made a whiiile back so I sat down and made it from scratch, without trying to continue the same story. Two of my favorite songs are on this volume - the spectacularly surreal and positive Angelo Branduardi's The Song of Eternal Numbers (please read these beautiful absurd lyrics while listening the song) and my officially favorite instrumental - the gorgeous Grace Jones La Vie En Rose Instrumental.

It was a huge pleasure making this one as each of these songs is a fragment of something I've been listening for the past 3 years. There is a possibility that I make more comps and if I do they will all follow this logic - I will not post new, trendy music but try to compile music that I really wanted to post on the blog over the years.

I do hope you will enjoy this selection and be sure to come back and comment - I wan't your opinions:) Also, upload it yourselves if you will I don't care, just share it if you like it. I will try and upload it on more services.

Well crap

Mediafire locked my account so most of the albums and compilations are gone. And I just decided to post a few more albums after a long hiatus...

I will try to reup at least my comps for now. I've been absent from blogosphere for a long time so what's the situation here now? Is music sharing that severely hampered now? And how are other blogs doing?

Doll By Doll - Gypsy Blood (1979)

ARTIST: Doll By Doll
ALBUM:  Gypsy Blood  
GENRE: Alternative/Indie Rock, Post-Punk
YEAR: 1979

British rock's lost masterpiece
Gypsy Blood by Doll By Doll is the lost masterpiece of British rock, by the greatest band you've never heard of. First released in 1979, this lush classic of near-psychotic beauty has everything you could ever want from a rock album.
A widescreen, windswept epic, featuring layered, micro-detailed arrangements, it sweeps from the tender to the terrifying, often within a few bars.
The playing is elegantly syncopated, technically impeccable, darkly dramatic. The singing is pure mercury and silver, band leader Jackie Leven's voice gliding effortlessly from baritone to falsetto, improbably lifted through the bloody guitars and hammering drums by Beach Boy harmonies and gospel choirs.
And the songs: well, the songs are stunning, weirdly constructed, richly melodic and boldly lyrical, beautiful, poetic songs about seeking meaning amid the harshness of life. With the grandeur of Dark Side of the Moon, the strangeness of Forever Changes and the bleak beauty of The Bends, it really is as good as any album ever made.

John Fahey - The Transfiguration of Blind Joe Death (1965)

ARTIST: John Fahey
ALBUM: The Transfiguration of Blind Joe Death 
GENRE: Contemporary Folk, Finger-Picked Guitar
YEAR: 1965
Hey all - apparently, I am still alive. I hope you missed me :)

About album
A strange man, John Fahey, with an unusual set of guitar styles. This album, originally released on Riverboat Records and later reissued by Fahey's own Takoma label, has a lot of rough edges in terms of the recording but a tremendous amount of power when it comes to the music. Fahey was at the top of his game, alternately playful and dark, so there's never a dull moment. There is always something new to be heard on each playing.
